Openoffice 1.1 menu in MDK 9.1

I have installed OO1.1 on MDK 9.1
the install script try to add the OO menu in the KDE menu but it fails because MDK uses menudrake to built the menu.
I can run OO from the console but I can not find it in the menu

I know it is possible to add the OO menu using the menudrake but this way take much time and I am not able to find the correct icons

I am wondering if it is possible (sure it is ) to edit the menudrake scripts to add the OO menu

when I install OO 1.0 by urpmi I can find the correct menu in the KDE menu ...

so can I do this by hand ??? ???

can anyone help

you just need to replace the various menu items by the one you just installed. Use the mdk menu editor and just change the command. Granted it's not the best of the drake tools but it's pretty easy. Do it as root if you have more than one user to change.

the problem is that I can not find the right OO icons in the list available in the drakmenu...
probably because the OO installation have put the icons somewhere and not where drakmenu looks for icons...

any tips?
